Bm-G-D-A (woo hoo hoo)
 
 
D                             A
They came down in 1988
G                                     D                   A
Thousand spacecraft, like petals on the earth
              D
And they had big eyes
			A
And they walked like spies
              G               f#          Em
Till they found someone who no one would believe
 
D		                                A
There you were in your underwear
G                         D                     A
all alone drawing comics for your church
D                                 A
and they took you up  and they put you under
G F#       Em
placed you on a table for observation
 
Bm            D                  A              E
Give me a deep kiss Im longing for distraction
Bm         D                     A              E
let  me touch your tits and keep you occupied
A																									G
if this comes as some surprise 
F# 
I am an alien
Bm                                          Bm  - G - D - A
and to observe you I must keep you stoned
D                                  A
There you lie with your doped up eyes
G                                                D                   A
Staring past the one who could love you like a christ
D                                          A
you see  thats  just the way it is up here
G F# Em
but I cannot meddle I will not interfere
Bm          D
Meet me in the park
A                           E
sometime after the night comes
Bm        D                       A                        E
you will see a star that shines like silver, smells like gold
A                       G       
follow it through fields and hills
F#
and to the landing pad
Bm                                  Bm-G -D-  A
you will give birth to an alien like me
Bm-G-D-A-D-A
